    I've been looking for a bag that doesn't look like a man purse or a camera bag, so I finally found something that is both stylish and stealthy. It also has deep, ample room in the main compartment for my E-PL1 with EVF-2 attached, 4 lenses with B+W UV filter (14-42mm, Lumix 20mm, Konica 40mm f1.8, and Konica 50mm f1.7 that's replacing my Konica 57mm f1.4), a Canon lens blower, Gary Fong's puffer, and a collapsible rubber hood [not shown].

    The small pockets up front carries EV-2 when detached, an extra battery, an extra SD card, Oly stereo mikes, a leather card case w/ business cards, and an extra HTC EVO 4G battery. I also carry a B+W 55mm circular polarizer.

    Pocket 2 - Olympus E-PL1 with EVF-2 and Konica 50mm (Attached with B+W UV filter, BRNO White Balance Cap)
    Pocket 3 - Canon lens blower, Konica 40mm f1.8 and the Lumix 20mm f1.7 stacked on top of it
    Pocket 4 - Collapsible rubber hood and the Gary puffer stacked on top of it

    I like it quite well.
    Bit pricey in the UK though, although most camera bags seem to be. View attachment 161561
  5. Camera bag p*rn - I like it.

    BTW Your 14-42mm looks pretty cool with the step-up ring and silver filter.

    Thanks, I thought it looks great, too!

    I wasn't thinking about how it was going to look, only that I needed a 55mm ring so I can use the same BRNO white balance cap for all my lenses. I have the same step up ring and silver B+W filter on my Panny 20mm =D

    I do wish the bag has is that it has a button closure in addition to the magnetic one - although I never really had a problem w/ everything spilling out - as well as having a grab handle on the top/backside in addition to the shoulder strap.

    Price wise, it's actually really well priced compared to the Domke, National Geographic, and Tenbas of the same size capacity and style

    jambaj0e, if you happen to own an iPad, can you please check if it fits inside the bag?
